✨✧ Don CherryRelativity Suite ... LP
JCOA/Klimt (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of Don Cherry's most spiritual, far-reaching projects – a wonderful record that builds both on his key avant work of the 60s, and some of the globally-inspired sounds he was cutting overseas! This date was done in close collaboration with the New York underground of the time – and the large group features work from a rich array of great musicians – including Charles Brackeen on soprano and alto sax, Carlos Ward on alto, Frank Lowe and Dewey Redman on tenors, Charlie Haden on bass, Carla Bley on piano, and Ed Blackwell on drums – working with additional string and percussion players in a sound that's completely sublime! There's a great ear here for unusual sonic twists and turns, yet these are mixed with some deeper organic tones, and some freer jazz passages – all to really ignite a great fire as the set rolls on. Titles include "March Of The Hobbits", "Tantra", "Desireless", "Infinite Gentleness", and "Trans-Love Airways". LP, Vinyl record album

CommonThisisme Then – Best Of Common ... CD
Relativity/Legacy, 1990s. Used ... $4.99
An overview of Common's early days on Relativity – featuring a few tracks each from Can I Borrow A Dollar?, Resurrection and One Day It Will All Make Sense – a strong sampler of his earlier greatness, if it breaks off way too early to be a genuine best of! Quibble as me might with the title, a compilation of Com's Relativity-era work is long overdue – and it's a display of his 90s Chi hip hop style. If you only came aboard with Like Water For Chocolate or Be, you need to take a look back! Benchmark work with production by Immenslope & Twilite Tone, No ID, Beatnuts and more. Tracks include "Take It EZ", "Breaker 1/9", "Soul By The Pound", "Charms Alarm", "Heidi Hoe", "I Used To Love HER", "Resurrection", "Thisisme", "Retrospect For Life" feat Lauryn Hill, "All Night Long" feat Erykah Badu, "GOD" featruing Cee Lo, "High Expectations" and more.

✨✧ Common SenseResurrection (original pressing) ... LP
Relativity, 1994. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Original pressing of this one – the front says "Common Sense", too – not "Common", as do the current reissues. Solid all the way through. Even here in Chicago, you rarely see the original of this now classic, mostly produced by No ID. With "I Used To Love H.E.R.". "Book Of Life", "Chapter 13 (Rich Man vs. Poor Man)", "Nuthin' To Do", "In My Own World (Check The Method)", "Maintaining", "Communism", "Watermelon" and seven more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Three 6 MafiaTear Da Club Up '97 (radio, street, inst)/DJ Herb's "Get Crunk & Tear It Up Mix" (full radio clean, inst)/Spill My Blood (street) ... 12-inch
Relativity/Hypnotize Minds, 1997. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Slightly updated version of their classic hit, with new lyrics and beefed up beat, from the Chpt 2. World Domination album. DJ Herb's remix is a four-on-the-floor stomper, super handy for that double-time transition. "Spill My Blood" is a Lord Infamous solo from the same album. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ BeatnutsStreet Level ... LP
Relativity, 1994. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first full-length Beatnuts album. Street Level is designed to succeed on, well, street level – but it's actually pretty damn diverse in retrospect! One of those more-is-more 90s albums with lots of tracks and some stellar production. Includes "Props Over Here", "Psycho Dwarf", "Hellraiser", "Ya Don't Stop", "Are You Ready" featuring Grand Puba, "Hit Me With That", "2-3 Break", and 10 more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Common/No IDBitch In Yoo (w/o intro, w/intro flip, street, inst)/Real Weight (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Relativity, 1996. Used ... Out Of Stock
"The Bitch In Yoo" is Common's famous dis of Ice Cube, released only on this promo 12" single. By the time the LP came out Common had supposedly settled his beef with Ice Cube so the track doesn't appear on any of his LPs, though it is on the Relativity Urban Assault comp. Production by Pete Rock – plus "Real Weight" with production by No ID. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ CommonResurrection ... LP
Relativity, 1994. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
In 1994 when everyone seemed to be turning hardcore, Common Sense wasn't having it. Introspective tales of growing up and living on the South Side that fit perfectly with No I.D.'s mellow production and spiced up with two guest appearances by Y-Not aka Twilight Tone. Classic LP, solid all the way through. Being in Chicago, people have have always asked is for this one, and that tradition continues over the years. This one was made with little regard to contemporary trends, and thanks to that, it's fresh to this day! Includes "I Used To Love H.E.R.". "Book Of Life", "Chapter 13 (Rich Man vs. Poor Man)", "Nuthin' To Do", "In My Own World (Check The Method)", "Maintaining", "Communism", "Watermelon" and seven more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Don CherryOrganic Music Society ... LP
Caprice (Sweden), 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
Early 70s greatness from Don Cherry – a double album's worth of profoundly spiritual soundscapes paired with lots of weird effects – and a very laidback groove overall! Tracks are written by Cherry, Terry Riley, Pharoah Sanders, and Nana Vasconcelos – and include performances by Don on trumpet, voice, and harmonium. Lots of cool percussion elements by the group, with some tabla and other Indian instrumentation. Titles include "Elixir", "Relativity Suite (Parts 1 & 2)", "Terry's Tune", "Hope", "The Creator Has a Master Plan", and "Resa". In a cool, trippy gatefold, too! LP, Vinyl record album

CommonLike Water For Chocolate ... LP
MCA/Def Jam, 2000. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $31.99 35.98
A huge creative leap forward for Common! Com had been slowly moving from a Chicago street poet role into a more universally conscious hip hop soul from record to record to this point, but Like Water For Chocolate is the one that really catapulted him deep into that realm – especially given the excellent, mood setting production of Jay Dee/J Dilla and The Soulquarians. For a little while there, we missed the rawer Relativity era vibe, and we didn't fall as head over heels for Like Water For Chocolate as the world at large did, but in hindsight, maybe we just weren't ready for it – it's easily amongst the best hip hop albums of the period. Titles include "The 6th Sense", "Cold Blooded", "Dooinit", "Geto Heaven Part Two" with D'Angelo, "Time Travelin' (A Tribute To Fela)", "Heat", "The Light", "Thelonius", "Payback Is A Grandmother", "Funky For You", "A Film Called (Pimp)", "Nag Champa (Afrodisiac For The World)", "The Questions" and "A Song For Assata". LP, Vinyl record album
(High quality Def Jam reissue – with nice, heavy vinyl.)

Gift Of GabFourth Dimensional Rocketships Going Up ... CD
Quannum, 2004. Used ... $2.99
A very nice solo set from Blackalicious MC Gift Of Gab – one that combines the fast, playful wordplay of Blackalicious with a more heartfelt soul style, kind of like Relativity era Common. It's a much more focused set than Blackalicious's Blazing Arrow LP – and possibly one of the best realized LPs we've ever heard on the Quannum label. The set was produced entirely by two hungry producers from the Northwest – Jake One and Vitamin D – and they provide a solid backbeat for Gab to work with. Very solid stuff – and we surely appreciate the consistency! Includes "Stardust", "Rat Race", "To Know You", "Hold On", "In A Minute Doe", "Ride On", "Just Because", "Way Of The Light", "Moonshine", "Flashback", "The Writz", and some more. CD

Andrew HillNefertiti ... CD
East West (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
One of Andrew Hill's best records of the 70s – a soulful trio recording performed with Richard Davis on bass and Roger Blank on drums – and a real return to the glory of his 60s material! Hill's piano still has that fresh angular modern approach of his Blue Note sides – but the bass and drum work on the album ground it a bit more – adding in some additional rhythmic components, and giving the session the spiraling searching mode of some of the other Japanese trio sessions from the time, in the spirit of the best recordings on the East Wind label for which this gem was recorded! Hill wasn't always at his best in the decade, but he definitely shines here on some long, very expressive tracks – with titles that include "Mudflower", "Nefertiti", "Blue Black", and "Relativity". CD
